Some images from one of my favourite Godard films, “Alphaville” (Godard  1965) which, despite being about a futuristic world where citizens are murdered for thinking illogically, was actually filmed without any special effects or futuristic sets, in real Parisian locations.

I find this transformative aspect of Godard’s imagination extremely intriguing and his confidence in undertaking such a project extremely heartening.

The following is one of my absolute favourite moments in all of cinema which is achieved with nothings more than creative backlighting, music and a voice over (not to mention Anna Karina)
